Our Reputation as Hormone Therapy Doctors in Virginia Beach, Norfolk & Chesapeake


“Now that I look back over the last couple of years, I can see things that I went through, such as an incident of getting irate with someone for no reason, or occasionally waking up in the middle of the night and just start crying, and I wouldn't know why and the list goes on and on. Then at the beginning of this year it hit me all at once. I didn't know what it was, but it hit hard (Perimenopause).

“I couldn't sleep at night. I would tell my husband how much I loved him, hated him and start crying all within 30 seconds. I was gaining weight. My brain was foggy. I couldn't finish a complete sentence because I couldn't even think about the word I was trying to use. I literally felt like I was possessed and I no longer knew myself.

“So, I went to the Internet to try and figure out what was going on with me. Nobody had ever discussed with me what all this fuss was with perimenopause and menopause. The only thing I was aware of was older women standing around with something to fan their faces talking about hot flashes. That was never going to be me!

“So after reading and studying everything that I could possibly get my hands on, I knew I had to be going through perimenopause. After studying my options, I felt I had several to choose from:

• Go to a regular doctor and be placed on hormones that consisted of ingredients that could potentially cause me more problems or different problems.

• Go to a regular doctor and be put on an anti-depressant to help relieve some of the symptoms that I may have been experiencing.

Bio-identical hormone therapy. After much research I found this option to be the most interesting and safest. I thoroughly research anything that I'm about to do to my body or that may affect me or harm me. That's what brought me to Synergy. This is where I wanted to start my journey back to me.

“It is important to note that about 4 months before I really crashed (as I call it) I saw my family physician whom I had been seeing for years. I explained to her some things that were going on with me and asked her if this could be perimenopause. She told me it could be. She asked if I was having hot flashes and I told her I had not been, which at that time I had not. She told me until I started having the hot flashes, she would not give me anything to help with the other issues that I had related to the perimenopause. She said typically nothing was ever given to any women who came to her office for perimenopause or menopause until the hot flashes started.

“Funny thing is, months later when I studied and researched all of this, I found that this is not an unusual response from a regular doctor. I guess in a way I'm lucky she told me that, instead of putting me on hormones that were mixed with some pretty horrible things. She is a great physician. That's why I've been seeing her for so many years and I guess the best way to say it is this just wasn't her forte, and at this point, I don't believe it is any regular doctor’s forte. I am not trying to make presumptions about all doctors out there, but I don't think this is something you fight or take care of with your regular or family physician. Once again, only my opinion.

Kimberly Harris and Synergy saved my life!! And I truly mean that. Literally!! After a thorough and lengthy health examination, Kim started me on bio-identical hormone therapy and supplements, and discussed my diet and exercise plan.

“After just three days I could already tell a difference. I'm so glad to say it has been almost 6 months now and I feel better than I have in years!!

“I haven't hit menopause yet. So yes, I probably will go through some more things in life, but as long as Kim and Synergy are around the thoughts of it doesn't scare me anymore.

“The two best qualities about Kim are first and foremost she sincerely cares about her patients. Kim strives to make you better! She fights the battle with you! She listens. She understands. I could go on and on! I believe in her so much and I believe in what she can do for people going through what I have gone through.

“If you are hesitant about hormone treatment therapy, I encourage you to take that first step with a simple appointment at Synergy. I have talked to so many women after going through what I did and I cannot recommend Synergy enough! I have also talked to other women who have went to Synergy and every one of them are as passionate about it as I am.

“I believe in it so much that I am trying to talk my husband into going. Yes men, you can have hormone issues also. It never hurts to be checked. Had I known about all of this, I would have went a year or two earlier than I did!

“Miracles do happen and they happen at Synergy!!!"
